T-8 days mama, let's go!
Although Halloween is looking different this year, that doesn't mean we can't celebrate and get into the spirit with our family! We can still dress up, eat lots of candy, take all the cute pictures in our costumes, and do our best to make this Halloween one to remember.
We all love the elaborate family coordinated costumes we see on Pinterest, but many of us don't have time for that in general, let alone during a pandemic. With most of us teaching or assisting distance learning, working and dealing with the mental state of everything going on, putting together a family costume may seem like too much. Never fear! I have rounded up eight last-minute family Halloween costumes that you can put together with items you already own. Times are tough, uncertain and different, so let's take the celebrations when they come.
Here are 8 easy Halloween costumes for your family you can put together last minute:
If you're a family with little ones who love superheroes, chances are you have some superhero costumes already lying around. While the kids sport their costume of choice, you can jump in on the fun by either wearing a superhero logo t-shirt or color-coordinating with their outfit based on the superhero they are representing.
Gray hoodies and a shark onesie are all you need to be a family of Baby Sharks (Do do do do do). If your family wants to take it up a notch, you can get these adult size shark onesies from Amazon delivered in time for Halloween, and this baby shark onesie can get to you by tomorrow!
Here is another spin on the baby shark idea! There are many ways to create a lifeguard look. You can order this lifeguard sweater from Amazon and get it by tomorrow, but any red sweater or even a white t-shirt paired with a lanyard whistle and sunglasses can do the trick. For the surfer, grab your favorite swim trunks a white tee, and paint an area of it red for the shark bite!
There are several different variations to go about this look. To represent Sandy in the final scene, all you need are some black jeans and a black top. To represent Danny, grab your favorite leather jacket, a white tee, black jeans, and slick back that hair. You can also go the poodle skirt or Rydell cheerleading uniform route.
Throw on a flannel, jeans, beanie, draw on a beard, and you have a coordinated family look that took seconds to throw together!
All you need for this look is an all-black ensemble, some felt eye masks, and a black beanie. If you want a more coordinated uniform, you can get these black and white striped tops for the whole family. Buy them on Amazon here: Kid's, Women, Men
Have a red and white striped shirt? Hey, even a combination of red and white tees should do the trick. Put those on, pair it with your favorite blue light blocking glasses, and you are ready to be searched for! Red and white striped T-shirts from Amazon here: Kids, Women, Men
Love football? Chances are you kids already have some jerseys they can sport! To create a team, have one parent throw on a polo shirt, a whistle, baseball cap, and carry around a clipboard to look like the coach, while the other can sport a varsity-style sweatshirt, cheer bow, and jeans.
